Mount Horeb High School Reviews

Absolutely wonderful Art and Music programs! All of the teachers and staff are generally very kind and many go above and beyond to make you feel safe and welcome. It is typically very liberal but seeing as it is a rural town there are a few students who are very outspoken in their hate but there are multiple clubs and committees in place to help create safe spaces and battle hate as well as stigmas! If you want to go to an ivy league college this really isn't the place for you though, with an 4.0 grading scale the best they can get you is a decent out of state. You would never be able to achieve your Cornell dreams. The diversity is almost nonexistent and it's very odd being one of the few kids who isn't predominantly scandinavian or german.

Mount Horeb's small student population (around 500 students were in the entire high school when I attended) allows for close attention from teachers and a sense of familiarity. They have a ridiculous number of well-organized clubs. When I talk to graduates of other high schools, I find that Mount Horeb's art and music department is significantly more developed than most. People tell me how lucky I am to have taken unique and interesting courses like Ceramics and Sculpture in high school. The fundamentals I learned in these specialized classes gave me a leg up when I took the courses again for college credits.
Mount Horeb High School is a pretty wonderful place to go to school. The activities and the academics are amazing-- specifically the music and art programs. However, the newer administration seems to have negatively affected the attitudes of some of the students and staff. And a lack of diversity within the area (primarily Caucasian students and staff) doesn't allow for incredibly unique learning environments. However, the positives far outweigh the negatives and any student would love attending this school. The academics, music program, and sports are truly top-notch.
